It looks like they're feeling some heat, and they should. Some thanks to Jack Kielsmeier who started the ‚"Boycott Sapphire‚"Ě web-site, and for all the hardware sites speaking out on it.

‚"Inquiries have been made into our retail partners and the investigation has yielded no findings that any of our loyal customers have been charged the 256-bit price for the 128-bit part. Sapphire encourages any of our customers who purchased a 128-bit part under the assumption that it was 256-bit part to exercise your right to return your product. Should you have difficulty finding satisfaction with your retailer, Sapphire continues to stand firmly behind our products and asks you to contact Sapphire directly,‚"Ě the company said.

Hahaha.

Return your cheap card and they'll sell you a more expensive model.

That is soooooo perfectly funny.

It think there's a willingness to make a straight substitute, at least if you go through them. It would be stupidity if they didn't, but they were plenty stupid in the first place. On Pricewatch there's one 256-bit version going about the same as the 128s
